Hopefully you mean this only because they are afraid to scuff things up. Bagged vehicles are a dream to haul and tow with.

Theyre all photoshopped. The guy that posted them on the hamb said that he photoshopped them all slammed and big rims.

I've seen pics of a panel that was converted to a pickup and done quite well. I was wondering if this is another one and the photoshopped one is the panel?

I don't believe that many hours were spent photoshoping the peach and white one. Yeah you are on the right forum that catches those kind of fakes . Oh and not my style.

The fact that there was some photoshopping going on the truck in my opinion is beautiful. I believe it was a panel that was converted to a pickup and was photoshopped back to a shortened panel. Whoever did the photoshopping did a good job too. By the way I sent you some reps. Don't get discouraged by some of the remarks made. There are some who can afford to build beauties like that and don't or do drive them and there are many who scrape enough pennies to build a beater. Either way it's still a great hobby just more affordable to some.

Oh no, they have come a long way beyond the looks mentality. While aesthetics is the main driver in mainstream builds, the components are extremely stout and the technology has advanced into static suspension reliability and strength. We aren't talking requirements like a Kenworth needs for these relics of ours, but you can get into heavy duty tow weights now - 8k-10k is not abnormal. Additionally air cars are making a name for themselves performance wise in auto cross as of the last few years.

The annoyances are there mainly in poor installs. Things like leak down, line failure due to bad routing, etc. All can be avoided with attention to detail. Reliability issues and strength are a thing of the past. I've got a burban I been tugging with for 4 years on a kelderman accu air system. Not a single issue. The 53 even came home behind it.

I gotta admit....I'm a fan! Irregardless of the photo shopping (nice job BTW) it demonstrates innovative concepts and current trends in the auto custom market. I've been in the motorcycle custom culture as a builder for decades and find myself wondering what the next flavor of the day might be. Although I might not personally agree with that flavor, no matter what it is, I do welcome others idea's and concepts to make our world a more diverse place.
My 2 cents worth for what it's worth.
